This summer, there are a ton of races going on around the city. If you’re looking for one where you can run or walk with the whole family, try the Amos Herr 5K Honey Run. It’s being held at A. Herr Park on Sunday, August 26, and the proceeds will benefit the Hempfield recCenter’s Everyone Belongs campaign and restoration projects at the Herr Homestead. Take the kids out and show them all the fun they can have while exercising and benefitting an amazing cause!
Sky Zone is an incredible way to play and get some exercise in at the same time. People of all ages are welcome to join for a date night or a fun family night with the kids! Sky Zone in Lancaster has something for everyone! You can take your kids to Toddler Time, go to Open Jump for a date, or grab a bunch of friends and go to Glow where the whole venue turns into a black light dance club!
Intercourse Bikeworks & Biketours: Electric Bikes and Covered Bridges
If you’re looking to experience the Lancaster county area in a different way, take a bike tour this summer! Ride through the beautiful countryside and experience slow living that you just can’t enjoy from the inside of a car. Since the bikes have electric-assist motors you don’t have to worry about the hills or being too tired to make it back to basecamp. These electric bike tours are available Sundays at 11am, May 20 – October 21st, or you can set up a private tour by contacting Intercourse Bikeworks & Biketours.
Stop by Chiques Rock Outfitters for Kayaking and Rock Climbing
Chiques Rock Outfitters offers all the equipment you could need for an activity-filled summer. Kayaking is one of the main staples of summer and it’s an incredible way to get some exercise in! It’ll get your heart rate up and build those back, arm, and ab muscles! Chiques Rock Outfitters now offers guided kayak fishing tours along the Susquehanna, if you want to combine two activities. They also rent rock climbing equipment and have discounted group rates if you want to grab a bunch of friends and go!
We couldn’t have a summer activities list without adding in the quintessential pool day. The Mountville Swimming Pool is open daily from noon until 8:00 at night, so you can enjoy a full day of swimming and sunning. The pool is always perfect for laps or to take the kids and let them get out all their energy!
No matter what your plans are this summer, there are always ways to make them fun and get a little bit of exercise in! Hopefully this list of Lancaster summer activities gets you excited to try some new things and have an amazing summer!
